Whether you call it DUI (PA) or DWI (NJ), drunk driving is a serious offense. The penalties become increasingly more serious as you accumulate multiple convictions. For second, third or fourth offenses, there is often mandatory treatment and/or jail time. In certain states, such as New Jersey and Pennsylvania, you may be treated differently if you are an out of state driver. For example, a Pennsylvania driver arrested for a first offense DWI in New Jersey would be treated differently than a New Jersey resident charged with the same offense. It is imperative that you engage counsel that has a working knowledge of all relevant state laws that could impact your possible sentencing. At Neff & Sedacca, all of our attorneys are members of the Pennsylvania and New Jersey bars.
